You're exactly right. I'll never need to design a motor or worry about rotor flux, just keep the plant running. I wish they had taught more practical relaying/substation maintenance but I guess that's what a good first job is for. Something they never told us in school was that Ugly's Electrical Re...

I get 17mpg max in town with my 5.0. I took one trip and got 22mpg cruising at 60-65mph but once I got on the interstate and set it on 75, my mpg went down to around 19.5.
I was definitely leaning towards the ecoboost but the dealer was more willing to deal on the 5.0 and it had everything I wan...

Unfortunately I had to have the bridge replaced on the Gibson. It was the old adjustable type and the glue was gone and just the 2 screws were holding it down. It was also cracked. Needless to say it didn't hold a tune. Stan Hebert in Hammond put the closest to the original he could but it's still ...

I can't give you a number off the top of my head but I'll give you a recommendation: Do your homework before running a gas line. I know a few people that ran their own and didn't use large enough pipe so they can't get the minimum flow.
It may also be a good idea to upsize the unit a little bit ...

You would need an inverter too, that's where the 12VDC is converted to 120VAC. You could spend a little more and get a Generac ix800 for $320. ...
